think about... go to just picking up 20 percent of government or making more or providing efficiency in the government and doing lots of that. there are a lot more things happening across the board that were driving forward. but the important part of this is really thinking about outside of the government. how will we have an impact in the lives of americans in so many profound ways. and it is not only easy to connect the dots between how we are using technology inside government. and how we are fostering a culture of government going forward related to how young women are in the education program for science or technology and how are we creating jobs in this country and infrastructure and anything like that. so most importantly, how are we fostering innovation in this country, that america, uniquely is founded on the grounds of innovation, we are here in the city where so much that have has happened in so many profound ways. and it seems like every time that we have such disruption in this country. and this time... the financial down turn and the pressure of cyber security and the p

wealth gap and the corruption by government officials xi mentioned in his speech. analysts speculated whether president hu would stay on as chairman of the party's central military commission after stepping down as general secretary. that's what jiang zemin did in 2002 before retiring two years later. but it appears hu is leaving politics entirely. and so xi jinping will control both the party and the military. he's set to take over as president next year. china's political machine has many moving parts. it's sometimes hard to figure out how everything fits together. so we turn to an expert for help from the japan institute of international affairs who gave us some insight on the party's transition of power. >> he capitalized his role as coordinator rather than the leader. and he was inciting on how he carried on with the tasks established by his predecessor and how he sensed a need of the people in the locality and he formed consensus. so i don't think he's bent on taking a very strong leadership. so i think he will try very hard to forge consensus rather than leading. five new membe

francisco government culture that the potential benefits to the san francisco community that have been raised, not just by us, are more than ignored. they are mocked by a city administration fearing change. we believe that only the mayor can make the changes that we and others have proposed. no one else has the direct authority over government operations than he has. he can do it if he is willing to put the passionate leadership he puts in attracting tech business to the city and improving the organization and technology within san francisco government. perhaps we have to wait for a different administration for there to be a fair hearing on ways to improve technology. perhaps you, the board of supervisors, can take up this challenge. we hope you will. there was a better ending to our title report, deja vu all over again. that is "where there is a will there is a way .". thank you. >> thank you for the time and effort put into that report. any questions right now president chiu. all right. with that i would like to ask the mayor's office to come up. cindy is here representing the
